The Government has confirmed details for a new pilot scheme to extend court opening times across England and Wales.
Six courts have been selected for the trial, including Manchester, adding either an early or a late slot. The early session running from 8am to 10.45am and the later one from 4.30pm to 7pm. The trial will take place over six months from this autumn.
Jurisdictions in the US, Australia and Singapore already have more flexible arrangements.
It is thought that the £300m cost of running the court and tribunals could be reduced by ensuring existing court buildings are in use before 10am and after 4.30pm.
